Chickpea Veggie Patties

We live on patties around my house. It’s fast and easy to make and always a hit with my two boys. Best of all these bites are jammed packed with veggies. It also includes added protein from the garbanzo beans and cheese in the recipe. I don’t have to worry about making other dishes, because it has carbohydrates, protein, veggies, and even some fat. I serve it with a side of fruit and I consider it a well-balanced meal.

I make a variation of these weekly.  Since I’ve received so many messages on social media about how I make them, I finally got around to writing a recipe blog post.  This is super for baby led weaning! Sometimes I add a little sour cream, marinara, or hummus on top to make it easier to chew. Ps: If you’re not already watching my stories, check it out! It’s the red ring around my profile name. I post kids activities and day to day mom life stuff. We have fun over there !
